I purchased a 2007 FJ Cruiser last October. I had never owned a Toyota prior to this purchase. Within a few months I had terrible back problems. I had never had back problems before and was in great physical shape. We figured out it was my seat causing the problem in my FJ Cruiser. The seat in this vehicle sits too close to the ground causing your knees to be higher than your torso. I quit driving my FJ Cruise and starting driving my old Vehicle and GMC Truck. My back began to heal and the pain went away. After a week of driving the truck I wanted to drive my FJ Cruiser again and my back started killing me. It was obvious there is a problem with this seat. Ergonomically you are sitting in a terrible position in this vehicle. I sold my truck this past Thursday. I want to know how many consumers are not paying attention to what is causing their lower back pain!
#22 of 27 toyota active headrests - how to remove?
Nov 25, 2007 (11:48 am)
I'm having a bit of trouble. I got some new custom car seat covers for my 2008 Toyota Highlander and the headrests don't come off easily. I looked online and it seems that the headrests are "active headrests" - so I'm wondering if there is some specific trick to remove them?
if you have any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!

I have had leather seats before but in my 05 Highlander I decided not to get them. I can not tell you how bad I HATE the cloth seats in this car. I have fussed about it for three years now. Just simple rain drops of water stain the seat. I have to have it detailed often to keep the seats from looking like a coke blew up in it. I complained to the dealer about it just after I got it and they didn't seem to care.
I have had cloth seats before in several cars but I have never had this problem with any of them, until now.

I'\t'll cost-but it can be done...any good upholstery shop can convert a drivers seat to a passenger seat- major problem is finding a goor drivers seat.upholstery can be altered also...
#25 of 27 Painful leather driver's seat.
Mar 25, 2010 (6:40 pm)
Love my 2006 HH but after just three weeks ownership the leather seats HURT. Coming from an old CRV the HH LTD was luxery. But now the backs of my thighs ache and it feels as if the side of my right thigh is bruised (high on the rt side). I'm not large (6 feet, 35 waist) but my bottom rides on the bolsters. The bolsters become wider and the seat more narrow towards the back. I bought a pad but it's not the same ride experience which I loved.
I don't like driving the car anymore, it really hurts
Are there softer leather seats available? Suggestions?!

6 feet, 35 waist ?
Eat more red meat, trans and saturated fats, and beer. In about 5-6 more waistline inches, you'll feel more comfortable.
